A basketball players feet are extremely important. Every single movement a player makes on the court is initiated through their feet. Here are a variety of exercises we use to improve foot/ankle strength, mobility, and proprioception. This will lead to fewer injuries and better performance on the court!
We don’t do all of these exercises every workout. We pick a few and rotate them. Some are geared more towards strengthening the feet, while others are more focused on improving the mobility of the ankle. We begin with the most basic exercises and progress as the player’s feet become stronger. We always make sure to perform our barefoot exercises on an appropriate surface (cautious of impact, slipping, etc.).
CAUTION: please perform these exercises at your own risk. Thanks for watching! .
